Crash Your Party

Stupid simple mind games, pushing 'til I'm insane Working through the day and night Strutting with my headphones, no one knows what I know Got no time to be polite And the world says, "baby don't worry, baby don't worry at all" Roller coaster seat belt, motion sickness soft shell Maybe I'm just not cut out

But I can feel it, no one can steal it They're gonna call my name Not gonna stop now, not gonna step down 'Cause I can hear 'em say

Take it away, take it away, take it away, yeah! [2X]

Leading with my right hand, can't afford the name brand Gotta give it all I got Had a taste of lime light, sweet and sour just right Now I can't escape the thought And the world says, "baby don't worry, baby don't worry at all" Praying running up hill, stage is my cathedral Baby I can see the light


Bright flashes, full glasses Now get up sing your song for the masses Close both eyes, feel the sunrise You thank God for the journey when you realize Long nights mean nothing at all Bright lights you can hear 'em call Got my poster up on your wall? We're in a storm now keep yourself calm Stop - hit it - break - kill it Anybody know the odds when I deal it? Anybody get up the guts to play? 'Cause you only live once better live for the day
